Currently, Jennings has been leading the tournament. The show has also drawn a massive number of audience, beating all the other broadcast networks.

Day 1 of the tournament kicked off with Holzhauer facing off Jennings and Rutter. The show's energy was so high that the audience could feel it from their TV screens.

JAMES HOLZHAUER LIGHTENS UP THE MOOD

The show's atmosphere is typically sensible and mature, but Holzhauer shook things up a little bit and lightened the mood by mocking his opponent.

At one point during the show, Holzhauer and Rutter buzzed in on the same question. Holzhauer had hit the button moments before Rutter did and before he answered the question correctly, he paused, pointed a finger at Rutter, and laughed playfully.

That moment alone was enough to make fans happy as they took to social media to opine how fun it was to see the element of humor in the show. Many even praised Holzhauer for his charm.

Holzhauer, who triumphed over a 32-game winning streak last year, certainly lightened up the mood. Some of the game show's fans on Twitter even said that the show was by far the most interesting thing to have happened in 2020.
